Hi Kyle,

First, THANKS for supporting OSX.

When I first ran W@H I was getting somewhere around the 100 cr/hr on my main MacBook. Even I think this is too high.

Most recently on the same machine I have gotten:
DNA - 6 cr/hr
S3 - 7 cr/hr
W@H (b/g video) - 9 cr/hr

I think somewhere around 50 cr/hr on this machine is reasonable. It puts it in the same place as Numberfields and a few others.

Less important thing : despite validated units, i'm still stuck to the the score I had a few days ago.

Besides, why do the units reward so few credits ?


I did have the credits incorrectly set for the validation. For now I removed the static scoring and am using the BOINC automatic score. Out of curiosity, where do you think you should be for credit/hours on this app?



Well, I was just looking at the previous year units credit rewards and the one we get now. As I said, that's not very important :) (and by the way, credit got these days haven't been added to the total).

Anyway, as M0CZY said above, units size is a problem, especially if you have a slow connection or a fixed amount of data for the month.

In my opinion, if it is not possible to reduce their size, you might make a big red warning about it in the project settings (like other projects do for RAM usage or such thing).

Crikey, I'm not going to be able to keep these going for too much longer!
In only 12 hours I've used over 2GB of my 10GB monthly allowance.

Yes,
my computers use about 20GB per day only in BOINC (today 12 physical cores). And next gigabytes in watching interface. :)

This should be happening, I think I fixed it. Let me know if it's not working!

Issue seems not to be solved. I still have the same amount of points (99 680) as I had a few month ago. Nevertheless, units are noticed ok & credited in the Task list

Well this is interesting. You have 7,723 + 99680 credit on the side of the forum, but 165,717 combined total. Then on the top lists you have 159,559.

Looks like some things aren't quite being calculated correctly somewhere. I'll try and get this fixed ASAP.

Looks like it's fixed in the forums! Top users is probably lagging behind because the server caches values.

Yes, I see that I now have a Silver badge and ~60K credits added (that's, I think, what I have crunched these days).

Thanks a lot for having fixed this issue so quickly Travis.

Have a nice day.

Hello

I use a virtual machine (computer number 8536) on my Windows computer, and half of this VM units lead to Validation inconclusive ( http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/csg/results.php?hostid=8536&offset=0&show_names=0&state=3&appid= ).

I have not this issue with my other computer (number 7240) which is under the same OS (Linux Mint).

Is it normal or does my virtual machine have a problem (maybe hyperthreading) ?


Edit : Well, i browsed a bit the Internet and found that : http://wahlnetwork.com/2013/09/30/hyper-threading-gotcha-virtual-machine-vcpu-sizing/

In fact, it seems to be no possible solutions to use hyperthreading in virtual machines.
